Typically for Bitti's earlier sonatas, the Sonata in B flat major that heads the London group features four movements in the standard configuration for chamber sonatas of the time: a prelude like slow opening movement followed by three further movements of either implicit or explicit dance character. This sonata has a particularly interesting second movement (Allemanda), where Bitti displays his rhythmic finesse and spontaneity of invention.
